Mickey Mouse Gingerbread Cookies

2 hr, 30 min
15 min


  • Gingerbread dough
  • 4 Teaspoons powdered egg whites
  • 1/3 Cup of water
  • 1 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Mickey Mouse shaped cookie cutter
  • 16-inch pastry bag
  • ¼-inch round pastry bag tip


  1. Make your favorite gingerbread dough recipe. Divide your dough in half and wrap each half in parchment paper. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

  2. After 2 hours, preheat your oven to 350-degrees. Roll out your first half of dough onto parchment paper. Sprinkle flour over the paper and dough if the dough is too sticky. Roll out the dough to ¼-inch thick and use the Mickey Mouse shaped cookie cutter to cut out Mickey shapes. Place the Mickey shapes onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes.

  3. Allow the Mickey cookies to cool for 5 minutes before you remove them from the cookie sheets.

  4. Combine 1 box confectioner’s sugar, 4 teaspoons powdered egg whites, 1/3-cup water, and 1-tablespoon fresh lemon juice into a mixer and mix on medium until combined. Continue to mix on high until soft peaks form (about 4 minutes). Pour the white icing into a pastry bag fixed with a ¼-inch round tip.

  5. Once the cookies are completely cool, you can decorate them with the royal icing. You can draw a scalloped edge all along the perimeter of the cookie or make up your own decorating technique.
